things fail because root can't fork. that means you might not be able to login on the console. it really
is not a good state to be in.

Great, you've addressed the technical aspect. I agree.

Now, about the issue you've elegantly avoided. The NetBSD commit
guidelines in:

say, in item #11, "Do not revert other developer's commits".

Let's say I would not catch this commit in source-changes@, and things
would go on, eventually breaking something in the future.

What do you suggest we should do, as a project, for the users, in order
to ensure things don't just "fall apart"?
